If you are a victim of someone else's negligence your ability to recover is dependent upon your personal injury lawyer being able to prove your case and damages. Thomas M. West is a litigator, and therefore will prepare each and every case he handles in the manner to prepare all cases for trial. If you cannot prove another party is responsible for your injury, your case will end there. Therefore, it is very important that you find the right personal injury attorney to build a strong case for you to meet the "burden of proof".
For your personal injury case, your attorney will have to prove that someone else was responsible for your injury. To prove someone else was responsible for your injury your attorney will need to prove Duty, Breach of Duty, and Proximate Cause. You will need a personal injury attorney that is diligent in not only proving that someone else was responsible for the injury, but he will have to prove your damages as well. In order to prove your damages you will need a personal injury attorney dedicated to compiling all the necessary documentation and one skilled in what documentation is required in order to prove your damages and maximize your recovery of those damages.
The calculation of your damages will be based on the following:
- your medical bills
- pain and suffering
- lost work time and limitations on your present and future employment
- rehabilitation time and expenses
- the value of any property damaged, destroyed, or lost
- the value of a life lost
It is very important that all of the above factors tie directly to the injury you received as a result of the other party's negligence. Your medical records will be very important in documenting a clear connection of these factors. If you delay seeking advice from a personal injury attorney immediately after being injured, you may cause a decline in the value of your case. You will need to have a personal injury attorney begin gathering evidence and documentation early in your case in order to maximize your recovery. Your personal injury attorney will also need to guide you in gathering and keeping the documents and records you will need to prove your damages.
